The theater has always been considered a mirror of its time, and many twentieth-century plays have reflected changing views of women. A large number of these, however, have been by men. Here is a volume of eight plays, all written in this century, in which leading women dramatists present their own pictures of their sex. Includes: Overtones by Alice Gerstenberg, The Children's Hour by Lillian Hellman, The Women by Clare Boothe, Play with a Tiger by Doris Lessing, Calm Down Mother by Megan Terry, The Advertisement by Natalia Ginzburg, Rites by Maureen Duffy, and Wine in the Wilderness by Alice Childress.
